|Aldermore extends asset finance training programme to support brokers|
|Tuesday, 28 June 2016|
Aldermore, the specialist lender and savings bank which recently celebrated its seventh anniversary, has launched its 2016 training programme, consisting of three workshops to support up-and-coming talent in asset finance broker businesses across the country.
Following on from their successful launch in autumn 2014, Aldermore held four free training courses last year, offering a fantastic opportunity for those working in the intermediary sector to gain a fundamental overview of asset finance.
The first two day course in the 2016 programme which focused on sales skills, was held on 21-22 June in central Birmingham and was attended by 30 brokers. The remaining two courses are being held on 28-29 June (regulatory training for brokers) and 12-13 September 2016 (principles of asset finance) at the Maple House Conference Centre, 150 Corporation Street in Birmingham.
Altogether so far, around 150 brokers have benefitted from these specially tailored workshops, which are one of the many ways in which Aldermore supports the growth and development of the next generation working in asset finance. They are delivered by an independent trainer, with in-depth industry knowledge, equipping brokers with the necessary knowledge and skills to become an expert in their field.
Registration for the 2016 workshops is now closed but Aldermore is already looking to offer them again in 2017 as they have been so popular.
Jon Maycock, Commercial Director for Asset Finance at Aldermore said: “Brokers are an essential part of the asset finance industry and it’s key that intermediaries, especially those new to our industry, regularly undergo training that allows them to grow their talent and advise their clients in the best possible way.
“Aldermore is committed to supporting the growth of the asset finance industry and know that SMEs in the UK will benefit if we invest in the people they work with, so we are delighted to offer this complementary programme.
“I welcome all those who plan to attend, as the course is not only a great way for brokers to grow their talent, but is also an excellent networking opportunity for those in the industry.”
Rishi Pancholi, Account Manager at Tower Leasing Ltd, who attended the first workshop at Maple House in Birmingham on 21-22 June, said: “The best part of the training and sessions was having the time and space to have a deep look in the mirror and see what I am doing well and what I really need to develop and improve on. This includes the relationship indicator and understanding the customer’s long term aims and challenges, alongside their short term targets. The training was extremely valuable and has made me more confident in recommending asset finance to my clients.”
